HL1302 Cable Skew Tester
The HL1302 Matched Cable Skew Tester is a USB-connected device measuring the delay difference (skew) between a pair of coaxial cables connected to the Differential Stimulus and Receiver Ports.
After a preliminary calibration of the time base using the first cable and terminations, the skew of the the second cable is transformed as an impulse
on the PC screen. The amplitude is displayed directly as skew in picoseconds.
Using this novel approach, the HL1302 can be used as a replacement for more expensive VNA hardware in matched cable applications
The included Zskew™ software for Windows displays full waveforms and numerical measurements in a highly-customizable user interface. The instrument is powered and controlled using a single USB cable.
